Biggs: Jones has company at tryout in Tampa

Matt Jones was not alone in his workout this morning with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It was reported on Monday that ex-New York Giants Super Bowl star David Tyree would be working out for the Bucs, and they were joined by three other wide receivers, according to a league source. Chris Davis, a punt returner who was cut in Tennessee after a DUI arrest, Yamon Figurs and Jordan Kent were all involved.

Jones, a former first-round draft pick, is the most high-profile name of the bunch and maybe the best offensive contributor. The others would figure to be pegged toward bigger roles on special teams.

Tyree has had a few workouts since being cut loose, visiting Baltimore and St. Louis, reportedly. Kent recently had a workout in St. Louis also. Davis has been making the rounds himself, and he recently worked out in New England.

Stay tuned.
